About

I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist, specializing in the treatment of trauma, addiction, depression, grief/loss, and difficulty with emotion regulation. When your coping mechanisms are no longer sufficient, and you're feeling overwhelmed, unhappy, anxious, disconnected or out of control, therapy is an opportunity to learn how to increase your ability to manage life's demands, improve your quality of life, and achieve the change you are looking for. Therapy will begin with a conversation about your hopes for our work. Together we will deepen our understanding of your concerns, and establish new ways of thinking, feeling and being.
I utilize an integrative approach and use techniques from various modalities including, psychodynamic, CBT, somatic, and mindfulness-based approaches. I am trained in Somatic Experiencing for trauma healing. I am also trained by Linehan's Behavioral Tech LLC in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and provide comprehensive DBT as part of my practice
I feel grateful that I love what I do. My style is easy going, collaborative, and honest. I balance my knowledge of theory and technique with a warm, empathetic, relaxed environment. I believe that being comfortable with your therapist is essential, and I offer a complimentary phone consultation to determine if I'm the right fit for you.
